British born David Courtney is a renowned composer, record producer, and recording artist. He has worked with many of the music industry's legendary names, including Roger Daltrey, David Gilmour, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Sir Paul McCartney, Ritchie Blackmore, Adam Faith, Gebne Pitney, and Blues Brothers guitarist Steve Cropper, to name but a few. He was also the man responsible for discovering international recording artist Leo Sayer and for co-writing many of his top selling hits.

David Courtney's life would have ended at the age of 10 had his father not rescued him from an abandoned refrigerator. Instead, David went on to enjoy a successful lifetime in the music industry as a composer and record producer. In The Truth Behind The Music he gives a unique insight into the music business, including what it was like to work with some of the biggest names in rock music during the past 45 years and to sell over 30 million records worldwide; his marriages; and personal tragedies, including the mysterious and controversial death of his former actress wife in her native Venezuela and the ensuing meetings in London with the Venezuelan Ambassador. In the book David recounts a menacing confrontation with the bosses of a major US record company over deliberately abandoning the promotion of the Roger Daltrey debut album Daltrey he had co-written and produced, in fear that its success would inspire Roger to leave The Who. He tells of his conflict with convicted multi-millionaire fraudster Roger Levitt over the multi-million dollar deal he brokered with Home Box Office for his prize fighter Lennox Lewis, and he reminisces over his long-time friendships with Roger Daltrey and the late 60s pop icon and actor Adam Faith.

The Truth Behind The Music is written and narrated by David Courtney. It was mixed together with a wealth of music from his catalogue, including never before heard original demo recordings and many hit records with Leo Sayer,... Download and start listening now!
